Antioch High School wins another national award!

2015 National Model School badge[1] We've always known Antioch High School is something special, and it seems like everyone else is finally catching on. Antioch's latest honor is to be named a 2015 Model School by the International Center for Leadership in Education. This means Antioch teachers and leaders will go to the Model Schools Conference in Atlanta this summer. At the conference, they will present to hundreds of school and district leaders from around the country, talking about how they do what they do and how others can follow Antioch's excellent example.

Earlier this year, Antioch was recognized as a Reward School, which means it is in the top five percent for academic growth in all of Tennessee. Antioch is also one of the most successful schools in the Academies of Nashville program, with all of its Academies being named national models.

MNPS_AN_AntiochModel schools are selected annually based on high student achievement in all subgroups, providing every student with a rigorous and relevant curriculum, personalized instruction, increased student learning time, parent and community engagement, use of data to make instructional decisions and other best practices.

“We are delighted that this exceptional school will be sharing its best practices, which mirror the International Center’s mission of providing a rigorous and relevant education to all students,” said Willard R. Daggett, Founder and Chairman of the International Center.

Congratulations to Antioch, and keep up the excellent work. You are making Nashville proud!
